What Is Cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is the use of technology to harass,threaten,embarrass, or target another person. By definition, it occurs among young people. When an adult is involved, it may meet the definition of cyber-harassment or cyberstalking, a crime that can have legal consequences and invovle jail time.
Sometimes cyberbullying can be easy to spot- for example, if your child shows you a text, tweet, or response to a status update on facebook that is harsh, mean, or cruel. Other acts are less obvious, like impresonating a victim online or posting personal information, photos, or videos designed to hurt or embarrass another person. Some kids report that a fake account, webpage, or online persona has been created with the sole intenstion to harass bully.
